I can only guess that both are bringing money to their respective rides.

Very much, do you remember TESCO horse meat scandal? Investigate.... very, very interesting from Jordan's PoV. Also, as far as I remember the company his father works for now didn't sponsor his son but... Alex Lynn.

Last two appointments, King and Binder, marks a poor state of teams accounts IMO. What else can I say... doubt they both would crack it in Lights. Poor

To be fair, I wouldn’t say that King is vastly different in terms of ability to Max Chilton, who hasn’t disgraced himself

Max had a season of Lights under his belt. He knew road circuits already when he turned up in ICS. Furthermore, he started his ICS career as full time driver at Chip Ganassi Racing. it's a different story to what King is going through, IMO.

King has got a good benchmark in Rossi, so he should do alright

I'm quite worried about the future of Santiago Urrutia. I wouldn't want him to be stuck for a third year in Indy Lights, while drivers like Binder and ZCD get seats.

Something is wrong Naburu. I don't see him on entry list to Daytona, his name doesn't pop up on any virtual list for Pirelli WC... Indy Lights again? What's a point?! That one million bucks, if he wins it won't go far. Few ICS races, and you back to square one.

Urrutia told me he's absolutely not interested in sports car racing.

Yes Binder especially. King at least had the occasional decent showing but then the next round would be no where. But Nato was the same. Pretty much equal talent between those two. Nato was obliterated by Magnussen in 3.5 though.

Neither King or Binder give much to help the reputation of Indycars. Just looking over the new guys this year, there's not a lot to get excited about is there?

We're almost at a point where Formula E's field is as talented as Indycars. Certainly the back half of the field anyway, if you exclude the Penske drivers, Dixon, RHR, Bourdais.

Formula E's rookies are Lynn, Jani, Lotterer, Blomqvist. That's some driving talent right there, you'd put them on any sports car team and expect them to win. Indycar... Wickens, Harvey, Kaiser, Binder, King, Veach, Leist. With the exception of Wickens you'd expect them to not finish.
